  • The problem is that the certificate is self-signed. FF3 just has a different dialogue for approving such a cert, but all browser will prompt you about it.
    • No, I'm not paying for it :-) Sorry if this post came across as ungrateful.

      Hmm. Well, I'm really no expert in the field of authentication, encryption and so on. I was just taken aback a little by the wording of the error message, mainly the word "invalid".

      It would be a nice gesture if some Perl-friendly organization would certify PAUSE, like GoDaddy did for KDE [dattitu.de].

      • GoDaddy seem willing to do it for any open source project https://www.godaddy.com/gdshop/ssl/ssl_opensource.asp?ci=5988 [godaddy.com]
      • I'm just saying nothing's changed except the browser's handling of self-signed certs. Admittedly, that change is rather jarring, since it looks a lot like a "failed to connect to server" error, as opposed to the old "insecure cert" popup.

        The GoDaddy option does seem like a good one.

          Yep. I just got it for rt.cpan.org as well and it surprised me again.

          Indeed. I shall try and find someone to bring it to their attention.

  • Thanks for the heads up!

    On Sat Apr 19 2008 PAUSE will switch to a cacert certificate. Please prepare your browser [perl.org].
